"he engineered bank mergers that only made them riskier and bigger. the problem is it's done without assurances that they won't repeat the mistakes of the past." the arguments for and against what should be done for financial institutions considered "too big to fail" will no doubt go on, as parts of the dodd-frank act continue to be implimented. the auto industry reports car sales later this week, and despite the winter temps, it's predicted car sales sizzled in january. early indications by jd power show car and truck numbers may roll in
